Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2

Newlywed Chihuahuas Papi and Chloe have their hands full with five tiny puppies in Disney's Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, a sequel to the 2008 hit, Beverly Hills Chihuahua. "Things are a lot different now!" says Papi.

This G-Rated movie (run time of 83 minutes) will be a hit with kids of all ages! From funny dog stunts, including dogs sliding into a puddle of mud,  making a mess with cake and ice cream and dogs dressed up in hilarious clothes, these talking pups never fail to entertain!

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 synopsis

When their human owners find themselves in financial trouble, the puppies (Aly, Lala, Pep, Rosa and Papi Jr) spring into action to help them save their home, although all doesn't go as planned. After attempting to win the $50,000 prize in the Beverly Hills Dog Show, the puppies find themselves in the middle of a bank robbery.

The pups have a plan – take some of the bank robber's money to help save their human owners home. Their idea doesn't quite work out when the bank robbers snatch their bags full of money – with the pups still inside! Papi and Chloe and the heroic pups go on a big adventure, reinforcing the fact that the family that sticks together makes it through the tough times.

Alex Zamm directs and George Lopez returns as the voice of Papi, the dad of the Chihuahuas, while Odette Yustman (You Again) voices the role of Chloe, the mom of the Chihuahuas.

Lopez talks chihuahuas

Lopez, who actually owns three Chihuahuas himself (Chico, Trixie and Monty),  said in an interview promoting Beverly Hills Chihuahua that he enjoyed improvising the dialogue based on what the dogs were actually doing. "I don't know about the other actors, but I, being a comedian, I would look at the thing and go, 'I could do something better than this.'" he says.

Lopez remembers one scene in the original Beverly Hills Chihuahuas where he improvised what he said based on the dog's actions. "Like that scene where they're in the police office, Sam and Papi, Papi's sitting in the chair and Piper walks up, and the dog just kind of looks over to the side as a dog would. So I said, 'Hannah Montana at 3 o'clock!' All the dog did was that and I put a joke in there. So that kind of stuff was nice. It adds to the movie."

DVD special features

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2 DVD special additional features include Blooper Faux Paws, This is My Paradise music video sung by Disney's Bridgit Mendler and sneak peek at Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure. The Blu-ray combo pack will include a Beverly Hills Chihuahua Challenge interactive game show – led by Papi himself!
